Just when you think STDs couldn’t be any scarier, now you have to not only worry about gonorrhea, but also super gonorrhea.

The sexually transmitted infection is becoming resistant to most antibiotics. And that, ladies, is scary as hell. Especially when you consider that women and girls ages 15 to 24 are at the highest risk for STDs and STIs. This is serious stuff!

Drug-resistant strains of gonorrhea have emerged in Japan (they always seem to have everything first), France and Spain, and if the trend continues, it could pop up here too.

One of the reasons this is so horrifying? Gonorrhea is one of the most common STDs in the U.S., and a lot of people who have it don’t even know it since it often doesn’t show symptoms. This means it’s super, super important to always wear a condom and get tested regularly, because gonorrhea can seriously eff with your reproductive system–so even if you don’t want babies right now (and we hope you don’t!), if you want them later on, you may be rendered infertile if you’re not careful.

Do the new STD statistics freak you out a little? Does the possibility of contracting super gonorrhea make you more inclined to use protection and have safe sex? Have you ever had a gonorrhea or other STD scare? Tell us in the comments!

    (meh, why the hell not?)

    Answer to question 1: then a girl is sexually stimulated, typically they produce their own lubrication. This can also happen during sex, not just masturbating.

    Answer to question 2: If you read the article you know that STI’s stands for “sexually transmitted infection,” pretty much an infection you can get from having sex. Gonorrhea is an example of an STI, and they usually clear up with medication. Sexually transmitted diseases (STD’s) are also transmitted through sex, though they tend to be more severe and at times, incurable.
